REFERRED ONLY TO CONDITION.
Supervisor Says He has Not Sought
to Flaco tho lUaine.
Editor Keowco Courier;
Please allow ino space in your pa-'
per to correct a wrong Impression
that seems to he abroad. It in said
by some of our delegation that in a
statement in your last issue I was
placing the blame upon our delega
tion for being out of funds with
which to proceed with my work.
I did not. intend to leave tho Im
pression that they, or any other one
individual, wore responsible for tho
condition of affairs.
I wish to state to the public that
I havo at no Lime blamed them, and
that immediately upon my bringing
tho matter to their attention they
all came to tho Supervisor's office,
at Walhalla on tho 22d of April, and
we, together with (he Treasurer, of
tho county and members of tho
board, discussed tho situation, and
we think we have solved the prob
lem of obtaining some money, with
their assistance, whereby we may bo
enabled to proceed with our road
I wish it distinctly undo ' t ooo thal
( nm not critic.ising'or blaming any
one man or set of men for the un?
pleasant condition in which I have
found our county, and hava only boen
Hying to bring the facts of the silu
:i".ic n before tho peoplo, and I will
continue to havo published these
fnets as they como to my knowlolge,
for I feel that they are of vital inter
est and grave concern to every citi
zen of our county.
Very truly yours.

COOK CALLS ON LAW-MA KIO H.S.
Says Peoplo Look to Them for Ad
vice and Counsel.
Editor Keowee Courier:
The people of our vicinity would
like to hear the sentiments of our
Sonator and Representatives In re
gard to the financial troubles of the
County Supervisor. We will admit
that we are not posted in regard to
the laws of our country, but the peo
ple naturally look to our law-mak
ers for advice or some explanation
on n matter like this, in fact, we do
not think nnyboly else can legally
arrange this matter. We know it
will bo a good, long limo until our
Legislature will convene again, but
it seems to us that the members of
the Oeneral Assembly and the Super
visor should get together, hold a
business meei lng and arrange mat
ters. If the members of tho Honorai
Assembly would promise to appro
priate the amount of money needed,
they could" probably borrow the
money from some of the hanks until
the next convening of the Assembly.
We think the only trouble about
this plan would bc Unding a bank
that has the money to loan. Hut just
any arrangement will be better than
to entirely abandon the rural mall
routes until next year.
Yours truly, J. A. Cook.
